This winter season has been anything but normal for Colorado. A mild and dry winter has Coloradans excited for the upcoming snow Sunday.
So far in the the city of Denver, just over 7 inches of snow has fallen so far this entire winter season…that’s nearly 2 feet below normal!
Nearly all of the Centennial state is considered to be in at least some category of drought, ranging from abnormally dry to severe drought conditions.
The National Weather Service in Boulder, CO forecasts anywhere from 4-8″ of snow to fall in the Denver area from Saturday night through Sunday. This would nearly double the seasonal snowfall total.
For the mountains, skiers will also rejoice, with anywhere from 6-12″ of fresh powder in the forecast.
A winter storm warning has been issued for the northern mountains/foothills, urban corridor, & eastern plains. Snow & gusty winds will greatly reduce visibility & impact travel Saturday aft/eve through Sunday aft. At lower elevations, freezing drizzle will precede the snow. #cowx pic.twitter.com/8ZMK2VdYQw
